We are really pleased to reveal our latest series of bags as part of our Island Collaboration project.
Tony Trowbridge is a locally renowned, prolific artist, who works with paint and stencils to create his individual style.
We have worked with Tony, to create a limited edition series of tote bags, each one hand painted, with a unique, stencilled design, onto recycled trampoline canvas [sourced from Margate in Kent]
As Tony's work can be seen predominantly around the Isle of Wight as part of the fossil art trail, it made sense for the profit of each bag, to be donated to a local cause.
We spoke to Kathy Grogan, Education Officer for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust , about the Wildbeach Project in the bay, who explained how they are making use of the resources we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep
"Our Wildbeach Project is all about connecting children, families and schools with the coastal environment of the East Wight, providing access and repeated visits through learning programmes, family events and training"
So when you purchase your up cycled tote bag, [either online or EXCLUSIVELY at The Beach Shack, Sandown], not only are you the proud owner of a bespoke piece of local artwork, but you are also contributing to a very worthy cause- full circle!
